Pleased

Welcome to the family, baby Austin. I still think they should have named you Kinky.

Around 4:20 this morning, the newest member of our crazy bunch of clowns arrived: Austin Thomas Baker.

Sarah reported his specs as 20 inches, 7.9 lbs, blue eyes and light brown hair. Coming full circle, Sarah cut the umbilical cord just as Amy cut Sarah's.

When I talked to Laurel today, she told me she gave baby Austin a hat and she got to eat in the hospital cafeteria /and/ got a new book in the gift shop. Then she asked me if her best friend's younger sibling had arrived yet. Poor kid's got babies on the brain. (:

Photos to come, of course.

Happy birthday, living_proof!
